Instant analysis of Lions signing OT Ricky Wagner

Posted March 09, 2017

Wagner does that and was the ninth-best right tackle in the NFL a year ago as rated by Pro Football Focus last season according to Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley. He's an above-average pass protector who can also open holes on the edge in the run game.

A person familiar with the negotiations but not authorized to speak about them publicly said "nothing yet" is done when it comes to the Lions and Wagner, but that the Lions are deep in the mix of five teams in pursuit of his services. If the Lions think Wagner is going to move over the left side of their offensive line, they are in trouble.

NFL Network's league insider Ian Rapoport says the deal could be worth over $9 million per season. A Lisfranc foot sprain late in the 2014 season forced Wagner to miss the regular-season finale and both playoff games.

That individual is offensive tackle Ricky Wagner, formerly of the Baltimore Ravens. They may have outbid every team with a paddle up by a long shot. Are you hyped that the Lions are players in this year's free agent market?

Wagner is considered one of the top two offensive tackles on the free agent market in 2017 and is expected to make a solid contract with his new team. Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson signed an extension previous year worth $11.2 million annually, but that was in anticipation of his eventual move to left tackle.

Wagner is projected to protect right side of the line, indicating the Detroit Lions are prepared to say goodbye to veteran and former first round pick Riley Reiff. Hurst has 16 regular-season starts under his belt and made the transition to the right side previous year. The Ravens gave Hurst an original-round restricted free agent tender yesterday. When Ronnie Stanley was hurt in the 2016 season the Ravens moved Alex Lewis to right tackle.

Lions general manager Bob Quinn wasn't kidding when he told reporters he wouldn't roll into 2017 with an offensive line comprised only of rookies and second-year players.
